Darius Rucker returns to country radio with a new preview of his forthcoming album, Carolyn’s Boy, as “Fires Don’t Start Themselves” made its debut across all platforms last Friday.
Written by Dan Isbell, Ben Hayslip and Jacob Rice, the sensual song showcases Rucker’s smooth baritone.
“When i first heard ‘Fires Don’t Start Themselves,’ the hook immediately got me,” reflects Rucker. “The beginning of the chorus, ‘Let’s drink what’s left of this.’ is classic ’90s country. I love it.”
Meanwhile, Rucker joined forces with the Black Crowes for a duet of “She Talks to Angels” at the CMT Music Awards last Sunday.
“I’ve been a fan of The Black Crowes for decades, and I’m grateful that we’ve also become good friends over the years. The first time I heard ‘She Talks to Angels;’ I remember being so moved by the lyrics that I went around Columbia, South Carolina asking every single bar to play it. I went home that night and put on Bonnie Raitt’s Home Plate, and decided I was going to try to write ‘She Talks to Angels’ for her. ‘Let Her Cry’ was what poured out of me. These guys have been so impactful on my career and I can’t wait to share the CMT stage with them,” Rucker said about the collaboration.
Rucker will kick off his Starting Fires Tour on June 15, visiting 21 cities across the U.S. and Canada throughout the summer. Joining the three-time Grammy winner as direct support across most dates will be popular Americana band Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors, with rising star Drew Green as direct support on select dates.
